News: Unsurprisingly, Telltale Thinks That Its New IP Is Ambitious

Unsurprisingly, Telltale Thinks That Its New IP Is Ambitious

Stop us if you've heard this one before

We'll be honest: Telltale's project selection has been frustrating us a little of late. It's not that we dislike Minecraft or Borderlands – but given the storytelling nous that it's shown in The Walking Dead, we'd have liked it to have selected more, er, narratively interesting brands. Fortunately, it sounds...

Pachter: Sony Won't Mind if PS4 Loses the Console War

But it still wants to be on top

You can always count on seasoned Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter to stoke the flames of the fictional format war. Speaking as part of a wide-ranging interview with Game Informer, the outspoken executive has suggested that Sony doesn't really care about outselling the Xbox One with the PlayStation 4 – but...

News: Happy Birthday to Sony Executive Shuhei Yoshida

Happy Birthday to Sony Executive Shuhei Yoshida

Many happy returns

Are we doing birthday notices now? Gosh, this site's gone right down the pan – we'll be posting pictures of DualShock-themed tables on Twitter next. Still, we suppose that Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida is just about big enough to have his date of birth acknowledged on these hallowed pages – after all, he...

10th February 2015 (North America)

Out of this world

It's a big week on the North American PlayStation Store for this particular author, as it marks the arrival of Super Stardust Ultra on the PlayStation 4. Those of you that have been following this site in the six years since its inception will know that we're obsessed with Housemarque's space blaster, so we can't wait to go planet...

Preview: The PS4 Exclusives of 2015 - Tearaway Unfolded

The PS4 Exclusives of 2015 - Tearaway Unfolded

Cut from the same sheet

Tearaway should have been the PlayStation Vita's signature game. Designed from the ground up for Sony's pocketable platform, Media Molecule's chirpy platformer not only made use of every single input on the system – but it also ensured that they actually added something to the experience. This is something of a rarity –...

News: You Can Spend Over $60 on Evolve's Day One DLC

You Can Spend Over $60 on Evolve's Day One DLC

On the hunt

Evolve's doing itself no favours is it? While the four-versus-one shooter has received some largely positive reviews from critics, its maddening pre-order campaign and the sheer amount of different day one editions that were available across consoles and PC put the game in a negative light for many potential buyers. What we're really...

News: Bethesda's Bringing Something Big to E3 2015

Bethesda's Bringing Something Big to E3 2015

Place your bets

The developer of many a beloved franchise including Fallout and The Elder Scrolls, Bethesda will be hosting its first ever on-stage press conference at E3 2015. This is a pretty big deal, as the firm hasn't really bothered making a splash at gaming's biggest expo in recent years. But while it's most commonly known for its work on...

Phwoar, Feast Your Eyes on These The Order: 1886 Spoiler-Free Screenshots Direct from PS4

The PS4's finest?

At this point, we've known for a while that The Order: 1886 looks amazingly good, and now Sony's gone ahead and released a bunch of screenshots to prove it. Apparently captured directly from a PlayStation 4, the exclusive has us rubbing our faces up and down the screen in sheer anticipation. We reckon it's the detail that really...

Indulge Your Inner-Eighties with Fresh SHAREfactory Themes

For those with no fashion sense

Way back when Sony released its free PlayStation 4 video editing suite SHAREfactory, we pondered whether it could become a bit of a cash cow for the platform holder. Well, judging by a post on the PlayStation Blog, it looks like that's about to happen, as senior producer Stuart Platt has revealed that the app'

News: Are Wallpapers Coming in a Future PS4 Firmware Update?

Are Wallpapers Coming in a Future PS4 Firmware Update?

Shake it up

While we reckon that the PlayStation 4 is in a pretty good place right now, it's clearly missing some minor features that were present on the PlayStation 3 – like the ability to set a custom wallpaper for the console. Themes were introduced as part of the next-gen system's most recent firmware update, but these don't enable you to...

News: Alien: Isolation Stalks BAFTA Games Awards Success

Alien: Isolation Stalks BAFTA Games Awards Success

Let 'er Ripley

Given that it was developed in the humble West Sussex town of Horsham, it's no surprise to see Alien: Isolation lead the charge at this year's BAFTA Games Awards. While the event always has a global presence, it tends to champion British titles above all else, and that's clear with the aforementioned survival horror scoring six...

Dying Light Points a Bright Beam in the Direction of Its Season Pass Plans

Illuminating

You're not done disposing of the undead, are you? With its gory opus now over a week removed from its original release, Techland has decided to detail exactly what Dying Light's forthcoming Season Pass will entail. Goodies include the Cuisine and Cargo pack, which is due out this week on the PlayStation 4, and includes two hardcore...

Talking Point: Do Review Scores Have a Future?

Do Review Scores Have a Future?

Number games

After an incredible 15 years – and more 8/10 jokes than we care to count – Eurogamer.net has dropped review scores. It's not the first site to do so – both Kotaku and Joystiq (RIP) ditched numbers and stars a while ago – but the news seems significant this time because our buddies from Brighton operate a more traditional...

Tekken 7's Opening Cinematic Is Hot Stuff

Open a window

Tekken 7's likely a while off yet, but that hasn't stopped us from getting all excited about its arcade opening. Featuring father and son duo Heihachi and Kazuya, it's nice to see that the good old family bond is still there. Throwing relatives into volcanoes is a favourite pastime of the Mishima, so it's no wonder that the two...

News: EA Hints at Huge Positive of Bringing Titanfall 2 to PS4

EA Hints at Huge Positive of Bringing Titanfall 2 to PS4

Az-u-were

Colour us surprised: we were pretty confident that the original Titanfall would be at the very least announced for the PlayStation 4 by now. If you go back and listen to the Xbox console exclusivity confirmation, the words used were "for the life of the title" – a wishy-washy statement that didn't seem to preclude a 'Game of the Year'...

Hold Up, PS4 Exclusive Drawn to Death Will Be Free?

Ink-teresting

Details regarding David Jaffe's forthcoming arena shooter Drawn to Death have been sketchy since PlayStation Experience, but the Twisted Metal creator has confirmed on Twitter today that the release will be free-to-play. The news was originally revealed as part of a promotional email sent to PlayStation fans, but the God of War...
